We were passing through Carlsbad on our way to Santa Fe. We were starving and found this little gem of a restaurant. We enjoyed a delicious meal with excellent service sitting by the fireside. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Carlsbad area. Outstanding!

Ate dinner here with my teenage kids while staying in Carlsbad. Had the porck chop and it was excellent. Ate next to the fireplace with a nice fire going on a cold night. Did not want to leave. Great place for good food or any special occasion. Would eat here again. We all loved our choices.

Four of us took a 3-day road trip to Carlsbad, New Mexico (from Las Cruces, NM and Green Valley, AZ) and a friend recommended this restaurant. Their tag line "The Epicurean Choice in Carlsbad" must be a true statement, as we were served wonderful food with great service from Clarice on December 1st. The prime rib was very tender and...

We ate here twice and the only reason my wife was able to get me to try it again was the food was good and nothing was open on Sunday. Terrible service. First time it took 30 minutes to get someone to take our check and they never diid, so left cash. Second time, couple next to us staid an... More

I went two nights in a row (not too many other good choices in town...my 2nd choice had closed!) ...but we had two great meals. I took a group of eight. We were seated in a private room (which was great as this group can get loud when enjoying themselves). Service was excellent both nights with attentive staff. A very... More

We stopped on our way to Carlsbad Caverns to have a nice lunch. While the food was good, it wasn't exceptional as was expected by the prices. A seven dollar child's plate was a small hamburger and some fries that matched a two dollar meal at McDonalds! I suppose this is a very nice place on a warm summer evening... More

Thanks for giving YellowBrix a try on your recent trip to our beautiful Carlsbad Caverns. We hope you and your children were awed and inspired by our spectacular wonder-of-the-world cave. We're happy that you found our food "good" yet lament your portrayal of our child hamburger as small and comparable to "a two dollar meal at MacDonalds". Our "Kidz Burger"... More

We're on a road trip from Denver to Austin and back and of all of our meals this was the best. Exceptional chicken tortilla soup with vibrant colors and complex flavors. The sirloin burgers were tender and served hot. I have little doubt that the rest of the menu is executed with equal care and skill. All Ingredients were fresh... More

We are in Carlsbad primarily to visit the Caves so asked at our hotel where to eat. YellowBrix was recommended but after reading the reviews we were a bit hesitant especially with the comments about slow service. Since it was Sunday night our choices were limited so decided to brave it rather than going to a chain. Are we glad... More
